An exciting trail that has it all.

Paul Stahlschmidt

Overview

Description

Warrior Creek is among the most progressively-built trails at Kerr Scott. Being the third trail system to be completed at Kerr Scott (after Dark Mountain and OVT), it represents the evolution of over ten years of purpose-built MTB trailbuilding. "The OVT on steroids," BMCC Trail Boss, Jim Horton, has said of Warrior Creek.

Warrior Creek's length is a big difference from other trails here. Combined with a section of the OVT at Warrior, it is usually completed with a 13-mile commitment.

Along the way there are rock gardens, bridges, tons of in-sloped turns, and great lake views. Often it's more than JUST BERMS; Warrior creek also contains several "super-stacks" of berms and banked turns that are likely to provide the most memorable part of your ride.

For those seeking even more mileage, Warrior Creek can be combined with other out and back opportunities on the OVT at Warrior Creek or the Black-Diamond rated Headwaters Loop. Be sure to see the the Kerr Scott - IMBA Epic Featured Ride for more details on Warrior Creek and connecting to it from other trails.

This trail is awesome, flowy fun. It's well maintained and very smooth. But how it's the #1 trail in all of NC is beyond me. There are so many more great trails in this state. Lake James state park, DuPont state forest, anything in Pisgah... the list goes on. Aug 11, 2017
